Houston Texas Bed Bug Injury Case

Our clients visited Houston on vacation from Minnesota.  The family of 3 flew down on a Thursday and checked into their hotel.  Upon check in, the family entered the hotel room and placed their luggage on the bed.  After dropping off their luggage, the family went out to see the sights and have a bite to eat.  An entire day of sightseeing and eating in Houston Texas is tiring work, around 9:00pm, the family returned to their hotel for some rest.  When the morning came, the family noticed that they had itchy red welts all over their bodies.  The marks resembled bug bites, but they thought it might have been from mosquitos.  After another night of waking up with itchy marks, the family complained to management.  Management denied any issues of bed bugs in the hotel and could not change rooms due to the hotel being booked solid.

After an online search as to what could be causing their bite marks, the family determined it might be bed bugs. The beds were inspected and black fecal spots were found.  Small white bed bug nymphs were found as well as adult red/brown bed bugs.  The family was horrified, immediately checked out and sought medical treatment for their bites.  By this time, the bite marks had all inflamed and had become open sores due to persistent scratching.  The scratch marks turned to scars over the next few weeks.

The family returned home with their luggage, and noticed that they were still showing fresh bite marks for several weeks.  They hired a professional pest control company to inspect their home, and bed bugs were found in the beds, the luggage and in the closet where the luggage was stored.

  4. I was bitten about 30 times by bed bugs in a hotel in Jerusalem between
    March 16 and March 20, 2018. The hotel deskman came up and verified
    the bugs present and so did my roommate. The desk clerk gave me sunburn lotion to apply to my bites which did not help. They said they made a report
    to management and would call me back, but after three subsequent calls
    to the hotel, I can get nothing but a promise to call me back. Can you help me.?
